    Hello all, it's been awhile since I posted a project because of my broken hand and then playing catch up to get some projects done.

  4. First Candle Thingy

    A friend of mine just bought her first house. I told her I would make her a small gift. Hopefully she likes these candle holders. The ends are made of Padauk, and the main boards are Bocote. It was a fairly simple project, but I was hoping to make something that would work with almost any...
  5. "My Tell-Tale Heart"

    This Knife was ordered from Jantz supply as a kit. The wood is Bocote bought as a 1/2" x 3" x 24" piece from Woodcraft. I sliced 1/8" of with a Zona handsaw, and used 1/8" piece for the pocket knife and used the 3/8" inch piece left over for a set of kitchen knives for the same customer. I...

  14. Sketching Pencil

    I finally got around to turning something for myself. I've been interested in the sketching pencil from The Woodturner's Catalog for a while, but always found other projects in the path. This weekend, I decided to turn one just for me. It's in Bocote from my scrap pile, but turned...

They range in size from 3"(the Oak) to 9"(Sycamore). He bought the Oak ones online and I just sanded & finished...
  16. A folding knife with bocote scales

    There's some wood here, so it counts right? This is my first attempt at making a knife. It's a lockback folder, with an O1 blade, bocote scales, and brass liners/hardware. I ground and heat treated the blade myself, and resawed the scales to bookmatch the grain. The wood is finished with...
  17. First Bowl, Mexican Bocote

  19. First bowls

    The first bowl is my first ever shot at any sort of face work. And oh my, was it full of mistakes. Turning bowls is a lot harder than turning pens, I'm pleased with how it turned out despite the problems. I have a long way to go though. There's a lot of end grain tearout on the sides, and I...
